The surname Cauldron was brought to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Old French "chalderonnier" or "cauderonnier," meaning "a maker of cauldrons."

Cauldron Early Origins



The surname Cauldron was first found in Yorkshire, where the Cauldron family held a seat from ancient times, having been granted the land by William of Normandy for assisting in the Conquest of 1066. The first known bearer of the name was Stephen Caldron, who was recorded in Yorkshire in 1289.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Cauldron or a variant listed above:
